PTI guys: Can Branch replace Moss?

Both Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon acknowledge that the strong relationship between “security blanket” Deion Branch and Tom Brady is important, but agreed that there’s no way the Patriots are a better team with Branch over Randy Moss.

Kornheiser: “Can I ask you a question? When was the last time you put Deion Branch and Randy Moss in the same sentence?”

Wilbon: “Never.”

Kornheiser: “[Branch] went away after the 2005 season. He’s 5 years older. Are you sure he’s just as fast? Are you sure he’s just as good a receiver? … Tom Brady’s emotional health is one thing, but [Branch] is no Randy Moss.”

What do you think? Does replacing Moss with Branch make the Patriots a better team? Or are they worse? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
